if under romney, would there be a federal law protecting people who don't have jobs with pre-existing conditions, allowing them to get insurance, and we've been told that there would be no federal law, it would be turned over to the states. diane, i also wanted to point out that we hired a lip reader overnight, to look at that moment on the stage, president obama and mitt romney on the stage. look at this tonight. president obama walking up to mitt romney, saying, good job, romney saying, thank you, thank you. the president saying, good, good, we'll do more of this. it would seem to appear that one of those men knew who won last night, diane. >> okay, david muir reporting in. >>> time to bring in co-anchor of "good morning america," anchor of "this week," george stephanopoulos. bottom line, george, did that night affect this race for sure? >> reporter: no question about it. it got mitt romney back in this game. it gives him momentum. it gives him confidence. after a month of being on defense, he is on offense right now. and both campaigns expect the national polls to tighten.
